On Thursday, April 6th, the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches needs YOUR help! On that day between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, you can double the impact of your gift to the Ranches at ArkansasGives.org.

For every dollar you donate to the Ranches through ArkansasGives, thanks to a matching gift from the Morris Foundation, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000! You can make your gift go twice as far by making a gift during ArkansasGives. Your gift will also help the Ranches earn bonus dollars from a bonus pool provided by the Arkansas Community Foundation. Last year ArkansasGives distributed $4.6 million online in one day for more than 600 nonprofits statewide. This is the last year for ArkansasGives, and they have a big goal of $5 million, so we need YOUR help to reach it! 

You can help right now by marking your calendar for April 6, 2017. You can even text ARGIVES to 24587 to receive a reminder text to give on April 6th. And on that day between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, you will be able to give online from any smartphone, tablet or personal computer by going to ArkansasGives.org, choose Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches, and make a credit or debit card donation.

Your gift will also help the Ranches compete for additional cash prizes. And don’t forget that the first $5,000 given will be matched dollar for dollar by the Morris Foundation!

The Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches are more than 90% funded through donations. We work to provide loving homes for Arkansas boys and girls, and we pay for all costs associated with raising them. ArkansasGives is a great opportunity for you to make an even bigger impact in the lives of these deserving children!
